I choose Internet relationships as my research topic. Recently, technology becomes a hot topic through everywhere of our daily life. I have taken several courses which had explore the questions of how could internet affect on our study? Internet brings a lot advantages to us. It makes our life more convenience and helps saving money, energy, etc. Our university offers a lot online classes which causes a new relationship between classmates. I personally have a strong feeling of the differences between face to face team working than only distance group meeting. Besides, instructors start pay attention on students' electronic equipments using during class. Computers are no longer only for notes taking. I believe most of us have the experiences of opening Facebook page during class time or observing others doing this. I am not a big fan of online social networking, but I am wondering what makes Facebook and Twitter so attractive to a huge amount of people? The other reason why I choose this topic is my best friend's boyfriend was cheating on her on Internet. I am still confused whether it counts for cheating. They share hobbies and secrets. They did everything like a couple online besides physical touch. Some people say it is cheating, some say no. I would like to do some research on that. Of course, not only the internet cheating, I feel it would be a really interesting topic to dig into. How could people deal with Internet relationship or online community? And how could it affect on real life?
